Chianti Cafe Beverly Ma

Recommended Posts

I had dinner last night with my sister in law at Chianti on Cabot St in Beverly MA and it was FANTASTIC. I called ahead and spoke to the owner Richard who told me that there were several gluten-free options on the menu, but that they also make zucchilini which is a pasta made from pure zucchini. He told me he'd let me try some even if I decided to order something else. There were so many gluten free options on the menu I didn't know what to do with myself. I had the vegetable risooto (delicious!) and the promised side of zucchilini- both were amazing....for dessert I had mango and apricot champagne sorbets.

It was so good and no reaction. he came out and talked to us for about 15 minutes. He was very sweet and excited that we were eating there as i'm celiac and my sil is vegetarian. He's planning on expnading the restaurant in the spring and adding more gluten-free and vegetarian options.

5 stars in my book. I wish I had four hands to give this place more thumbs up!

Excellent! By coincidence we have a Chianti Cafe here (completely unrelated, I'm sure, as Boston is a bit out of the way of Calgary) and we love it there. Ty always tells the server he wants "the usual". Then he has to explain that the usual is Fettucini Alfredo. Then we have to prompt him - what kind of Fettucini Alfredo? Oh yeah. Gluten Free. They use rice vermicelli noodles, but have told us they'll cook our noodles if we bring some in.

Oops. Just read that you said Beverly, MA. Beverly of Beverly. (My twins name is Beverly, but we call her Bev.)


Linda, Mom to Ty (11 years old)

Ty was diagnosed by blood test June 7/05

biopsy Aug 11/05, diagnosis confirmed Aug 18/05

Mom, Dad and big brother Celiac-free.

No way! A twin named Bev! I NEVER meet people with my name! Cool.

Actually, she was named after a man. :ph34r:

My parents had wanted a boy, and ended up with two girls :o . I'm the second born twin and was completely unexpected. My parents told the fellow they were going to name their first born after that they couldn't because it was a girl. He said that his middle name was Beverly, and they were welcome to it if they liked it. Meanwhile, they had no name for me, so I was named after my father's favourite blind mining pony from when he worked in a coal mine on Cape Breton Island. :blink:

They did have a boy many years later.

OK- now that is HILARIOUS because I've always said that my name sounded like a burly, gruff weight lifting woman. "Hey Bev, can you bench press 300 yet". The only famous Bevs I know are weight lifters, 300 lbs opera singers. I like Beverly better anyway. It sounds a little more feminine. :P

So you were named after a blind mining pony in Cape Breton?Wow! Life is weird. Now, I'm Beverly in Beverly :ph34r:
